Subject: Wrong Franklins?
Then again, what would I know?
I got busted on the way to this show after getting in an accident in the pouring rain on the Merritt Parkway and 'spent the night in jail' (two in fact). And that after sleeping out at Radio City two days for tickets and getting first few rows.
I missed the rest of the run except Halloween when I broke probation lol.
From what everybody said, 10/23 & 10/31 were the best two and I caught both of those.
The acoustic sets were fun, but they seriously sidetracked the electric MONSTER the Grateful Dead were in the second half of 1980.
What could they have done with 25 electric only shows that Fall?
We'll never know.
But a lot of great songs like China Doll, To lay Me Down, Jackeroe and of course Birdsong returned due to the acoustic sets.
So I guess it was worth it in that light.

Subject: Thanks For This
Anyway, it was a great show, and pix of the scene there don't do it justice. Thanks to the stage guy who picked us up in his VW under a bridge in a downpour and brought us right to the door. What luck that was. Ended up sleeping in a hotel hallway in Stamford on the way back. It was all worth it. I later had to move into IDC dorm as I got more caught up in the waning days of the enlightenment

I was at this show, it was a good one. This "To Lay Me Down" ended up on Reckoning, and the "Franklin's Tower" ended up on Dead Set.
